From the early days of spring through the rainy au­tumn sea­son, mead­ows and forests are in­hab­ited by a cu­ri­ous com­mu­nity. Tales of the Mush­room Folk from Signe Aspelin peeks into the whim­si­cal world of mush­rooms from the evilly odif­er­ous stinkhorns to the de­light­fully in­dus­tri­ous puff­balls and shaggy ink cap class­rooms. Beau­ti­ful vin­tage il­lus­tra­tions will en­chant while in­spir­ing bud­ding my­col­o­gists and nat­u­ral­ists to ac­cu­rately iden­tify a dozen va­ri­eties of edi­ble or poi­sonous fungi and toad­stools.
